My Komiket Haul

Komiket is one of the premiere comics and art markets here in the Philippines, and I’ve been attending it as an exhibitor along with the Haliya Publishing team for a few years now. Believe me when I say it is one of the best sources for Filipino art enthusiasts. Here you can get a wide range of products from local creators: from stickers, art prints, original art, art commissions, zines, comics, books and many more 👍🏻

Just sharing some crowd photos above! It is insane. Filipinos are really a hungry crowd when it comes to art and comics.

Without further ado, let me share with you my Komiket haul! I have been obsessed with my journal lately, so my haul consists mostly of stickers. I call it my #stickertherapy ✨

Komiket haul

One thing I love about the Komiket community is the artist’s generosity with their art. Some of these are even given to us for free! It’s just a really lovely experience. Unfortunately, I’m unable to take note of some of the artists’ names hence the photo above is uncredited. If you recognize them, please let me know who to tag! ☺️

And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed my haul as much as I did. If you are from the Philippines and looking to attend the next Komiket, you may follow their FB page here to get timely updates. Hope to see you at the next event! 🌸

  1. This is such a fun blog post to read! Thank you for inviting me and making me experience my first time Komiket. I was overwhelmed. I am broke. But? I AM HAPPY. Thank you, Ate Pryn!

  2. WHAT. A. HAUL! I was hoping to attend Komiket too, but being unemployed really took its toll. It would have been fun to just be there, but then again I won’t be able to handle going home without any loots.
